    If too runny, add more flour. If too thick, add more liquid.
  • STEP 5
    Heat the oil in the wok or deep pan until 200C. Throw a bread crust to check, the oil is hot enough when the bread turns golden in 10 sec.

    Once the oil is hot, deep your fish/veggies into the batter, remove access of the batter on the edge of the bowl and gently immerse in the oil (away from yourself). Repeat with up to 4 pieces at a time. Make sure to let the oil get hot again between the batches.
